Supervision for Mindfulness Teachers: A space where the teacher is supported and flourishes

Mindfulness Supervision

“A regular space that is contracted between supervisor and supervisee that enables them to reflect together on the supervisee’s mindfulness practice and explore how it impacts and integrates with their work and life. This process is dedicated to developing and deepening the growth, understanding and effectiveness of the supervisee’s application of mindfulness, both personally and in their working life”

(Bangor University)

The Supervisor “mindfully holds and balances the SUPPORTIVE, EDUCATIONAL and ETHICAL strands of supervision” (Bangor University).  

The TASKS of Supervision are:

1. To provide a safe and reflective space;

2. To aid development of knowledge, understanding and skills;

3. To provide feedback, stimulation and containment;

4. To challenge and stretch;

5. To promote excellence within the ethical framework of teaching mindfulness-based interventions;

6. To co-evaluate practice, in light of the MBI:TAC (Mindfulness-Based Approaches: Teaching Assessment Criterea, developed by Bangor, Exeter and Oxford Universities);

7.  Clinical supervision, where it is required, is provided within your own work context.
